As we come to the end of the Christmas season may I thank you for your Greetings, the Gifts and the Christmas Offering. They are all much appreciated. In this Year of 2022 may you grow strong in faith, being filled with hope and a deep sense of concern for others.
It is also a good moment on your behalf to express our gratitude for those who serve the Parish in all sorts of ways – in the Liturgy by Reading and the ministry of music, in administration in financial matters, banking, accounting, gift aid and maintenance in the Church and Hall, and the weekly preparation of the items for communication through the Parish Website . To those who have cared for my personal welfare my thankfulness for lifts , meals and practical assistance -right down to a reminder that I need a haircut .
For all of this Deo Gratias,
